Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9719843A1] A trailer braking control system for incorporation into the braking equipment of a towing vehicle for providing a trailer braking command signal which is also regulated as to balance the braking between the towing vehicle and the trailer through the assessment of forces (Fv, Fh) in the coupling between the two vehicles. The assessment is made indirectly and is calculated from forces measured in the suspension components of at least two axles of the towing vehicle (Ff, Fr) and the changes occurring therein during braking (dFf, dFr).
